Good day all. Please I am having a bit of a challenge with the Visa on Arrival letter.

1. Should I fill the letter, scan and upload it to my email?
2. Is it necessary to include hubby's international passport biodata page as well as mine?

Thanks a lot for all your help.

Good evening,

1. You can type, print,sign and then scan the letter or you simply type the letter and send via email.

2. Hubby's international passport biodata page must be attached also.

Good luck with your application.

I am still trying to get a hang on it myself. I've sent an email with the following information

The Comptroller General
Nigeria Immigration Service
Nigeria Immigration Service Head Quarters
Abuja.

APPLICATION FOR VISA ON ARRIVAL

I wish to apply for Visa on Arrival for my infant son. His details are as stated below:

Name:

Passport number:

Address:

Date of Arrival:

Port of Entry:

Airline:

Please find required documents attached: His passport bio, my passport bio, hubby's passport bio, travel itinerary.



I've still not gotten any acknowledgement and this is the 2nd time I've sent this mail. I called and they said I still have plenty time but the lack of mail acknowledgement troubling. Does it take up to 24hrs to get an acknowledgement?

Wow! Thanks to God.
IAH wasn't as bad as I have had reason to think. Got in on Saturday, it was a breeze, very uneventful but surely a GRACE thing, very much like different from all one expected and prepared for.
Still resting, but will be at the doctor's office this morning hopefully. Will update us soon

When is the trip back, they usually tell you to apply for a visa if it's far it simply send mail acknowledged. I advice you use Gmail or yahoomail only.

Here's the story, I applied online two weeks before my trip. I didn't get any acknowledgement. Waited for a few days and hubby called since he's in Nigeria. They said they have technical challenges or upgrades. That we should send the letter 4 days later. We waited but didn't still get the acknowledgement. Called again and they said technical upgrades. That if we know someone in Abuja the person can bring the hard copy documents to the HQ.

My sister in law took the hard copy documents to the HQ and someone was demanding 10k from her! Imagine? I am really angry right now. I spoke angrily to her that the visa on arrival application letter is free. She now went to meet someone else at the top who reaffirmed that the letter is free and directed her on who to submit her application to. She was asked to pick it up in the morning.

It seems like a ploy to delay the VOA letter to few days before you leave in order to drive you to desperation. The annoying thing is that those particular useless Immigration officers be comparing the 10k to the cost of shifting your airline ticket to bow you into submission. This is unacceptable.

So my advise to anyone applying for VOA with hard copy. When you arrive just tell them to direct you to where you will drop the applications. DO NOT drop a dime. Please don't spoil this fight against bribery and corruption. Let us stop feeding this monster. Please.

Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by ozymes: 4:09pm On Dec 04
Naija passports and the almighty US passports for the blessed ones, but for you and us ensure you get your C-Visit UK visa before you attempt to near the airport.

Lolz! It is not “ALMIGHTY” but pretty mighty/“almighty”, and definitely not ordinary compared to the one Nigeria currently accords us. My guy, you used to be a correct person oh, this visa delay they gave you is taking a better part of you. I quite understand your annoyance though, but you are not entirely getting the narrative right too....
